The resort is good clean and tidy though it is very small and limited activities. The plank underneath the mattress was broken so our bed was a sloppy bed. The food is good with a lot of variety. Staff was also cooperative. It has got 3 restaurants all'em are good. Old Rooms are really old

Just got back from a week in paradise. This resort is beautiful and the snorkeling out of this world. You can see baby sharks swimming near the beach. We enjoyed the food immensely at both the Reef and Suan Bua. The Italian didn't impress us so much so we only went once. The staff is absolutely wonderful and the resorts...

We are sitting here on our last night reflecting on what a lovely location it has been to spend our honeymoon. Special thanks to two members of stafff, Kudoo and Nil Anga, both of whom have provided stand out service. They have made our holiday that little bit more special. This is a beautiful retreat and well worth a visit.

We lived in the Ocean water Villa in the hotel and the view is perfect and it is a good place for snorkeling and enjoy the sunset scene. The hotel is so friendship and good to arrange some activities such as fishing and sun set cruise for tourist participation.
